Or it's actually a point now where the issue is not convincing them to -- the cloud to.
-- level of awareness is higher than it's ever been you've -- companies like sales force -- poster child.
You have Microsoft is -- changing the way they go to market.
Leading with clout first.
The bigger issue is.
It IT person or somebody at a business knows that they have to move their application to the -- but there's so many decisions they have to -- There 1020 different depending on the type of business applications that need to worry about.
Figuring out which one to buy across each category -- negotiating those deals handling the bills handling the different support organizations trying to get them all work together worrying about their end users logging into each and every separate.

They cross you know virtually every type of business from.
Doctors' offices to accounting firms to law firms to manufacturing companies.
Sports teams airlines.
And a are all just looking for an easier way to do business in what's a typical price for them.

It all works together out of box you want to make a phone call you click in outlook.
And the call is made you want to share files.

Or with -- Double workers you wanna do a video conference it all comes together works together really well.
See you have over 600000.
Business accounts in the cloud and you're responsible for protecting all of your customers' data and information how are you doing that are you fearful of attacks in recent hacking that have been in the news coming from China and other sources.
It would be irresponsible to not be concerned and we we.
Think about it very seriously and we have.
Experts in our company we have systems we have technologies.
To ensure the highest level of protection and security of our customers.
What businesses trying to -- -- on himself for it by themselves particularly a typical small medium business they can't possibly have the expertise.
The people the technology the investments that constant management 24 by seven by 365.
Days -- -- to do that well.
That's another reason why coming to companies like in the media or another -- clout company makes its would you say would be irresponsible for small business owners are trying take on -- -- of protection of that data on their own.
IE it would be it would be the -- usually unique business that could do that on the wrong successfully successfully as a lot of -- yes.

Designed for the technical.
User -- in who's looking for.
To handled his applications development and -- you have the business cloud in the business that is really applications that are running.
In the cloud salesforce.
Microsoft with office 365.
I'm Google apps and Intermedia are perfect examples of this what are the cost savings for -- small business that brings there.
All they're sweet they're -- offices of the -- So it all depends on what cloud application document I can't speak with in the media -- customer typically saves between 1570%.
From what they were doing before most of our customers.
Coming from an on premise environment which means.
That he have servers in people and software that they're managing.
And so then they moved it to the clout to get these things and as I mentioned typical customers is 50s%.
